Early Experiences, Later Functioning:How and Why a Secure Base Matters Compelling research evidence indicates that secure attachment is linked to a variety of aspects of children’s healthy development. This presentation presents a comprehensive model whereby both cognitive and non-cognitive mechanisms may mediate the link between secure attachment and children’s response to threat, with consideration of long-term and pervasive mental and physical health functioning. A reception with snacks and beverages will be served after the presentation. All undergraduate psychology students are encouraged to join us for the presentation and stay for the reception.
